Dear Margie
Received your letter of the th day before yesterday but Ive been so busy I just couldnt find time to answer Will try to dash off a few lines before I go to work this morning Can you imagine me writing letters at AM We got some new men in the night before last What a lunch They came from Camp Barkley Texas Most of them were to be discharged because of some disability Theyre in a heck of a shape The Colonel wants to go ahead and discharge them all If he does will be in work up to my neck What a life No rest for the wicked they say I must be pretty wicked I dont mind too much because when Im busy the time goes fast

I guess Bill is home on furlough now Got a letter from Mother saying that he wired for some money so he could come home I would of liked to have been home at the same time but all furloughs have been canceled thus I wont get mine until November sometime Bill talks like he might be shipped out Sure hope he doesnt but I guess well have to wait & see Say sounds like you had a real party the other night Good for you No I dont believe I would have liked to have been there After all what could I do with so many "gals" around Im just a bashful little boy Ha Ha Played ball last night downtown Our company played one of the other companies under the lights I caught as usual Had a good time but we got beat We dont get enough

Take a short break with our 1 minute survey, simple questions that are an enjoyable distraction.
